car description

1948 Cadillac Series 62 Saoutchik Cabriolet ONE-OF-TWO Chassis # 486237307 This custom Cadillac is one of two similar cars bodied by Jacques Saoutchik of Paris, France. Saoutchik was known for his extravagant designs, taking many risks with sweeping shapes and copious amount of chrome. The Genius of Saoutchik's design on a large chassis is demonstrated in his ability to minimize the overall scale of the car by concealing the size of the wheels as well as using painted lines to reduce the height of the cowl. The early owners of this car included Paul Kassoff and Louis Ritter. Mr. Ritter was the founder of Ritter Brothers Furriers of New York. He was well known for his extravagant wealth, flamboyant lifestyle and eccentric taste. There is no wonder why he choose such a car for his stables.
